The group develops advanced mathematical methods and algorithms to tackle problems in signal and image processing. In particular we advocate the joint optimization of the sensing and processing layers to achieve imaging and inference results that cannot be achieved otherwise. We handle large amount of high-dimensional data and develop model-based as well as learning-based methods.
